Vehicle Description

The second-generation Corvette might just be one of the best cars ever created.

This stunning C2 pro-tourer is an amazing classic that's ready for years of endless cruising thanks to a custom chassis, tastefully upgraded aesthetics and 525 horses of Chevrolet Performance small block! Looking to put some killer American muscle in your garage? Check out this phenomenal Vette!

ATTIRE IS FORMAL

A head-turning collector car that's been massaged into a jaw-dropping pro-tourer, this smashing Sting Ray is the product of a professional, ground-up restoration that was completed by Tony's Muscle Cars of Sugarloaf, Pennsylvania. That top-notch build is capped by a sinuous and equally solid body, which reflects a deep coat of rich Tuxedo Black two-stage. And that body bends a buff canvas for a wide array of both custom and traditional details.

The car's timeless charm begins with polished 'razor blade' bumpers, which split small driving lamps and a stainless 'egg crate' grille. Above that grille, electric Detroit Speed headlights join a '67 header emblem to lead a requisite Stinger Hood, which fronts polished wipers and tinted, stainless-trimmed glass. A cloth soft top complements a factory hardtop over factory door handles, 1967 fender louvers and 1965 "FUEL INJECTION" badging. A classy driver's mirror reflects a chrome-trimmed fuel filler over a polished tag pocket, monochromatic taillights and two more 'razor blade' bumpers. And all that five star flash is set off by a bright red Stinger Stripe and red-trimmed rocker guards.

NEW AGE POWER

Tilt this Vette's aggressive hood and you'll find 6.2 liters of divine GM small block that's officially known as the LS376/525. Purchased directly from Chevrolet Performance, that trusty mill twists respectable 10.7 to 1 compression into 525 horsepower and 486 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of the block, a conical filter slinks breeze into a polished tube, which fronts a proven GM throttle body. That drive-by-wire unit feeds a lightweight GM intake, which splits rectangular-port L92-style heads. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons compress that volatile union. A hydraulic ASA cam utilizes high-rate valve springs to maximize intake efficiency. Speaking of breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through factory LS exhaust manifolds. There's a massive aluminum radiator that's slid in front of a big Syclone puller fan. Polished serpentine components spin a polished, Vintage Air-branded alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. Everything communicates well thanks to a Chevrolet Performance ECU. A color-keyed intake shroud looks great between modern Corvette fuel rail covers. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution photos, the Cast Aluminum mill rolls in a clean, Tuxedo Black frame that's finished with niceties like a smoothed firewall, proven GM plug wires and polished The Right Stuff Detailing brake components.

TOUR IN STYLE

Park this pro-tourer on a lift and you'll find a thoughtfully upgraded undercarriage that's prepped, primed and ready to roar! A fresh 4L65E 4-speed kicks a posi-traction Dana 44 differential. That fourth-generation Corvette pumpkin pushes a fourth-generation Corvette rear-clip, which rolls as an integral part of a powder-coated SRIII Motorsports chassis. Modern power rack-and-pinion steering leads a fifth-generation Corvette front-clip. At the corners of that fully independent suspension, a quartet of power-assisted Corvette calipers cinches a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors in front of double-adjustable Viking coil-overs. Aluminized pipes funnel fried dinos through an H-shaped crossover, throaty Magnaflow mufflers and polished stainless tips. And at the corners of the car, ZR1-style wheels throw torque through 245/45ZR18 General G-MAX radials.

UPGRADES WITH PURPOSE

Pop the lightweight doors and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that continues this Sting Ray's striking visuals. Front and center, fifth-generation Corvette buckets sport vivid red leather. Ahead of those seats, a lightly modified dash hangs crisp Dakota Digital telemetry above modern, direct-fit audio. A shallow console frames a trick shifter in front of a color-keyed armrest and chromed power window switches. Fade-free door panels complement fade-free carpet. The driver spins an attractive, cross-flag-branded wheel around a polished, tilting column. And everything stays cool thanks to quality Vintage Air climate control.

Storming the market over 68 years ago, America's favorite sports car remains some of the hottest performance on the planet. This brilliant pro-tourer is a world-class custom that features a potent drivetrain, a modern suspension and many well-executed details that make it the perfect combination of show and go. There really isn't a better hobby on earth than owning a classic car, and driving this striking drop-top is the perfect way to celebrate that hobby!
